  1. In the Windows Live window, click on your name. In the menu that opens, click the 4th command which is ACCOUNT. This screenshot should help you find what you need to close this account. screenshot The close account command is the 6th one down at the bottom of the screen.
  2. I'm assuming you like your Ask toolbar or you'd just uninstall the whole thing... but you don't want it checking for updates at regular intervals? All you really need to do is stop the scheduled task. Assuming you're running Windows 7? Go to the Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Task Scheduler. In the Task Scheduler Library on the left, you should be able to find Ask toolbar (apps are grouped by publisher and I don't know if that will show up as Ask or something else). Once you find it, click on it to have it show in center window. DON'T DELETE IT! It will probably just recreate itself. Instead, you can disable it. With Ask Toolbar Updater in middle window, click on it once to select it. Then click on Properties in the right column. In the pop-up dialog box, select the TRIGGERS tab. Click once on the trigger (weekly, monthly, daily, etc.) to select it. Then click the EDIT button at the bottom of the window. You're almost done... Another pop-up titled Edit Trigger appears.... CLEAR THE CHECKBOX indicating ENABLED (at the bottom of the dialog box). Click OK to accept the changes and close the Edit Trigger dialog box. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box. Close the Task Scheduler. No more annoying Ask Toolbar Updater.
  3. By downloaded, I'm assuming you've used RealPlayer's download tool or something else to get an actual MP2 or AVI file. Now you can use Windows Live Movie Maker. It's not the friendliest video editor. You can't see individual frames until you play them in the preview screen, but it works. Second option is not free, but it's not too spendy. Buy a DAZZLE Video Capture device. Made by Avid/Pinnacle. They cost about $50 and can be found at BestBuy. You get their video editing Studio with it which is easy to use and works really well. Worth the money because now you can hook up your computer to your TV and make DVDs of anything you can see on the TV screen (yeah, all those movies you have on the DVR). Have fun making movies!
  4. By mail merge, do you mean being able to personalize a message and send it to multiple recipients with each receiving only the msg addressed to them? It's not an Outlook tool. Never has been. That tool is found in Microsoft Word and the wizard will walk you through it. After composing your message, Word can call up your Outlook contacts, you can select e-mail recipients, and you're in business!
